"The chief source of art is man's pleasure in his daily work, which expresses itself and is embodied in that art itself."
William Morris (1834-1896)

Hot Pressure...

When the temperature is in the nineties, the only cool place to go is the studio. Steve threw the last (64) of the #110 minis for the Metropolitan Museum of Art catalog a couple of days ago. (That was a long day!)  Now we are decorating them and beginning to look over our shoulders to the other orders we put aside. At the beginning of the year, we really didn't know how we would fare this year. It has been such a crazy time economically.  So I scheduled a lot of shows to go to and now, finally a few galleries here and there are picking up the phone and contacting us. It is all good news but the pressure is on! the order for the Met catalog is due in July. We hope to start glazing and firing soon to make way for other pots.

We weren't the only ones who found the studio the coolest place to be.... this is olive....
